I’ve noticed that my favorite baristas tend to give me Feminine or Masculine Shots of Espresso.
Charlie (gal) almost always makes sweet, complex and velvety shots with no bitterness.
Brian (guy) almost always makes rich, dark chocolate,and complex earthy shots with no bitterness.
The other guys and gals tend to follow the same path depending on their gender.
Very, very interesting.
I like both kinds of shots, and I suppose more than anything, I like to be pleasantly surprised by new flavors.
